I would consider it both an honor and privilege to be selected for the Roland-Story Honor Society. This is an organization the represents the best in what students have to offer to others as well as themselves. I feel that I would be a worthy candidate and member of this organization as I constantly work at being my best in all areas, but especially in the areas of character, leadership and service. Character is a difficult trait to sometimes define and explain, but I feel that I work hard to demonstrate such characteristics such as dependable, compassionate, honest, and enduring. Let me explain what I mean by each.
Character, scholarship, leadership, service: the four pillars of National Honor Society. These pillars have led me to the person I am today. I became a member of National Honor Society my sophomore year of high school, since then I have volunteered more, focused more on school, and became a better person. I have always been someone to get involved in the community, whether it is within my school or not. I love seeing the difference I can make in someone life, just be lending a helping hand.
The National Honor Society helped me gain communication and confidence skills. It was where the top 20 percent of students gather together to volunteer and build leadership for their current clubs and future dreams. I enjoyed doing community services with this fantastic group because they have helped me become a better leader towards anything I wanted to be. While I was building my leadership I was also building my self-esteem. I was being more confident in meeting new people and giving out a speech in front of a huge crowd.
A key step to this is what I want to do after high school, and ISM seems like a good first step to help me decide. I really want to be a part of this, as it seems like a once in a lifetime experience to me. Working with different people is a big interest for me, as I love being around people, and working with students who have
Each of the National Honor Society’s four pillars, character, scholarship, leadership, and service, are a part of what the students of NHS embody in who they are and how they act. Character is the sum of who a person is and how they act, be it good or bad. Attaining good character is very important because one’s character will seep out into all aspect of one’s life and permeate into the decisions they make. Scholarship represents the importance of education and learning. Through good grades, high test scores, and academic excellence one develops a love for lifelong learning.
I have a lot of hope in the future of our developing community because of all the students recently inducted into the National Honor Society and the active adults always ready to lend a helping hand. If ever given the chance, I would come back and volunteer for my home community
During my first year in JROTC, I’ve improved on loyalty. Loyalty is an Army Value that every student should carry because being loyal to something or someone will help you a lot in life. Someone who is loyal stands up for their principals and morals also they are reliable. I’m loyal to the community and I’m held accountable for my responsibilities. Loyalty is an Army Value that every student should carry because being loyal to something or someone will help you a lot in life.Honestly, I think that I have improved on Loyalty because I’ve been loyal to special teams.
I believe that a leader is someone who knows how to properly guide others, as well as rely on others when needed. I also believe in leading by example as the bible says in Titus 2:7, “In everything set them an example by doing what is good...” I believe that how I behave, how I interact with teachers, others adults, and students can provide a positive influence for my peers. I hold several student leadership roles at school. I am a member of STUCO (student council) and DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America), a global organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges. I am also a member of two mentoring groups, Dulles Diamonds and PALS (Peer Assistance &Leadership), which provide peer positive support to address issues like bullying, low achievement, at-risk youth, and behavior problems.
I am involved in many clubs and organizations at my school in which I run top positions as vice president or captain. These are just examples that can justify the reason of why I deserve this scholarship. I overcame adversity at my high school when I was told that my
I believe that I deserve this scholarship for several reasons. One of the reason to why I deserve this scholarship is because I have worked really hard to do as good as I can throughout high school. I have maintained a grade point average of a 3.214 on a 4.0 scale, and with this GPA it has landed me a spot in the top 30 percent of my graduating class. Another reason that I deserve to win this scholarship is because I have participated in activities and clubs though the school that have gained me knowledge along with the opportunity to give back to my community. For example, my participation in the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America has given me the knowledge to be a better person and has given me the opportunity to give back by
The first of my short-term goals is to graduate high school as a participant in the National Honor Society. The National Honor Society is a program high school students apply for and if they are accepted, gain multiple benefits from. Accepted students must have have high GPAs, multiple hours of community service, be considered strong leaders within their community and by their peers, and be of good character. It is my goal to become a member of this program because not only does it help with college applications, but it also challenges me to improve my strengths and weaknesses. More specifically, I’m wanting to it to push me to be more involved in the community resulting in improved leadership skills.
These range from the National Honor Society, Student Council, and Beta Club. These clubs have given me the opportunity to practice my leadership by chairing service projects and contributing my ideas to better the school and the community. They have also allowed me to serve others through tutoring, donating, and
I am truly honored to be one of the many outstanding students at Seminole High School who are being considered for admission into our chapter of the National Honor Society. I feel that I fulfill the expectations of the Society because I exemplify scholarship, leadership, service, and character in both our school and our community. However, the pillar that I feel that I represent best is service. After more than 130 hours volunteering, I feel that I can truly grasp what service means to our community, and how that service exemplifies one of the pillars of the National Honor Society. Volunteering at the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System truly cemented what my perception of what service is.
“Yes, I have to be apart of this.” was my immediate thought when I opened the letter. I did a lot of research and asked a few people about what I would need to take part in this group. “The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation 's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.” quoted from The National Honor Society website. I want to be more than an outstanding student.
